The power locks and power windows of the whole car shut down. Not sure if it's a power relay or not, but if all stopped working at the same time, what's the issue?

Possible all power runs through the master switch. Check if there is power to it. May also want to check the wiring at the hinges where it comes into the drivers door for any broken wires.

The front passenger window only goes down but not

it's working from the drivers side. i would assume the passenger switch is bad or there is a wire disconnected from the switch.

Power switch drivers door


You will have to remove the inside door panel in order to remove the switch assembly. There are 9 or 10 scews to take out and then the door panel will pop off the door and then lift the panel upward to clear glass channel. Turning the panel over, you can now gain excess to the screws holding the switch to the panel.

Hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa.

How to replace interior door latch on elantra?

Remove any and all screws from the door panel, including removing lock and window controls. then take a large flat-tipped screwdriver and pry off the panel all the way around. FInally lift panel up and off the door. Now you will have access to the inside of the door. Everything from here is self explainable.

at the bottom and top of the switch there are retaining tabs. you can try to pop it out at those points with a flathead screw driver, but it is sometimes easier to just remove the door panel to get it out.

All 4 electric windows will not go up or down.

First, check the drivers door to body wiring where it passes between the doors. I'd take the panel off and start from the inside and work your way through the part that travels inside the rubber cover to the car. These are notorious for rotting wires in that area, which will cause a large problem.

If the harness is ok, replace the drivers door power window switch assembly. If the drivers door switches are bad then none of the others will work either. I see this very frequently as well from people who use too much Armour All cleaner, or drive with their window down in the rain and get it wet(smokers usually).
